Here is a scarf I bought for 50 cents at Wal-Mart in Alaska! We came up here from Rapid City and NEW it wouldn't be as cold, so... we only came up with jackets! Of course there are a few cold moments so I am arming the kiddos with a few warmer things. Of course... just the scarf wouldn't suffice with me!
First... I should tell you that this scarf is DOUBLE LAYERED. If you are making this from scratch... double the layers!
Anyways.. I started by folding this in half. The I sewed the 2 sides together, rounding the bottom left corner there to make the hood.
Then I drew two straight parrallelt lines about a half in apart. The line started at the base of the hood and angled out a few inches.
From here I sewed each side separately along the lines to sew both layers of the scarf together.
Then I cut some elastic. I ended up making the elastic about half the length of the scarf. These are longer... I changed it! lol
Then I carefully cut the seam of the two layers in between the 2 lines that I had sewn so I could snake the elastic in. Then I sewed it back down!
Here she is wearing it!
She was wearing it INSIDE while watching a movie! lol I guess she likes it!
